Two Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

FitnessSyncer allows you to add an additional layer of protection to your account by using our Two Factor Authentication (2FA) feature.

Our 2FA uses an Authenticator app such as Authy, Duo, Google Authenticator, or Microsoft Authenticator.

Getting Started

To get started, simply:

  • Go to your Profile and expand the Two Factor Authentication section.
  • Scan in the QR Code on that page. Should you not be able to use the QR code, you can copy and paste the code beneath the QR Code image.
  • Configure your Authenticator app for use with FitnessSyncer
  • Securely store a copy of the recovery codes presented below the QR Code; these will grant you access to the account show you lose your device.
  • Enter in a valid code from your Authenticator app. Do not include a space.
  • Select the Apply Two Factor Auth button

If all was correctly saved, you will receive an e-mail letting you know that Two Factor Authenticator is enabled, and your next log in will require the code.
